Who is an Orthodontic Specialist?
Your orthodontic specialist is a specialist in the diagnosis, prevention and treatment of dental and facial irregularities. Orthodontic specialists must first attend university then complete a four-year graduate program at an accredited dental school. They must then successfully complete an additional residency program of at least two-three academic years of advanced education in orthodontics. Only dentists with this advanced specialty education can present themselves as orthodontic specialists.
